Summary: Parents need to know that Buzz! Quiz World is a straightforward trivia game for one to eight players filled with general knowledge questions suitable for teens and up. It features mild violence in the form of exploding bombs that cover contestants in soot, and some of the avatars are somewhat sexualized. There is an online element, but it doesn’t let players communicate with one another.
Excerpt: The games industry is home to some absolutely ludicrous titles and Nanaca Crash definitely rides high on the list. Once you start the game, you see a generic looking anime dude standing around minding his own business, complete with some stupidly shiny hair (because he’s worth it!). You’ll notice behind the hapless guy an angle meter just begging to be clicked. One click chooses an angle, and another selects its power. What happens next?
Excerpt: It’s time to give up hope that quiz-show games will ever match the free-associating, pop-culture-obsessed brilliance of the 1990s’ You Don’t Know Jack CD-ROMs, but the Buzz! games are the closest anyone has come. The main difference between the two series is that Jack thrived by virtue of its writing, while Buzz! is fun because of its quick, varied format. So while Buzz!
Conclusion: If you own Buzz on PS3, this comes across as nothing more than a cynical cash-in to prise more money out of you. If you don’t, this is a good, family-friendly game and a reasonable way to spend a beery evening.
